Week Two: American Women We Admire, Part One

“On my own I will just create, and if it works, it works, and if it doesn’t, I’ll create something else. I don’t have any limitations on what I think I could do or be.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

Welcome to another week at Graceful Grit!

Today, there are greater opportunities for women than ever before. In the past few decades, many societal expectations have flipped, and women are free to pursue the life they desire. Women have the ability to become whatever they want to be; the ability to follow their dreams to their greatest heights. This week, Graceful Grit will be highlighting the many roles professional women play in America, and how their passions have inspired us and others.

Monday, Lorraine will profile local author Sharon K. Penman in, “An Inspirational Authoress.”

Tuesday, Alyssa will examine the impact Whitney Wolfe Herd has made on the way women interface in, “How Whitney Wolfe Herd is Changing the Way Women Network.”

Wednesday, Keira speaks about author Sarah Elizabeth Schantz and her first novel Fig.

Thursday, Angel will discuss the life of Jennifer Lopez in, “JLo and Me.”

Friday, Julie talks about the impact that Ruth Bader Ginsburg has had on her in, “The Notorious RBG.”

We look forward to you joining us this week while we express our admiration for women in high places, and we hope you enjoy what you find here.
